Don't raise the minimum wage!

Listen 15:16

"That Canadian Guy" Glen Foster and Martha Chaves are putting in overtime to answer one of Canada's hottest economic questions: Should there be a $15 minimum wage?

Glen's answer comes from a mistrust of big government.

Why should the government determine the value of work? I've seen the government's work and determined it to be of little value. - Glen Foster

And Martha's answer comes from a mistrust of big spenders.

Wealthy people are willing to pay $15 for a burger from an ethically raised cow. They should be willing to pay a few more dollars for an ethically raised human. - Martha Chaves
